Just Add Ink #473 | Choose Two

It’s so lovely to be back designing for a Just Add Ink challenge.  Apart from the fabulous group of ladies in the design team, one of the things that tempted me to stay with JAI is the range of challenges.  It’s a great way to inspire a range of creativity.with a rotating list of fabulous challenge themes.  This week it’s “Choose Two” – Metallics, Twine or Washi Tape.

I am a serial washi tape hoarder.  I buy a new set almost every catalogue and so rarely use it.  The washi from last year’s Holiday Catalogue is currently on the clearance rack (click here to check it out the Clearance Rack), which reminded me to use it – and lots of it!

The wreath for this card was created by wrapping washi tape around a cardstock ring (made with circle dies).

WASHI TIP: Use the metallic washi from the Suite Season washi pack to line the outside edge of the mat layer – creating a pretty layer underneath your card front.

The ribbon for this card is retired.  Ribbon is another thing I hoard, so I’m trying to use more of my stash before succumbing to the new pretty ribbon in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue.

The stamp set is brand new though – and a total favourite (even at this early stage!).  You’ll want to get your hands on the new and amazing Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.  It’s perfect for just about every Christmas greeting you’ll need this holiday season.
